Like Tony Romo and Dez Bryant, Dallas Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray took part in his first preseason game Saturday night at AT&T Stadium.
Murray played the first two series, getting the ball on nine of Dallas’ first 14 plays.
The fourth-year back carried eight times for 34 yards and turned a short screen pass into a 21-yard gain. Murray also failed to secure a Romo handoff on the game’s opening series and the fumble was returned for Baltimore’s first score.
Murray said he's ready to carry the ball however many times they give it to him, but that's the big question - will the Cowboys run more this year. With an aging Tony Romo coming off back surgery, one would think that would be the case but we've heard reports that everyone in the Dallas organization loves to throw the ball, so a lot remains to be seen. Murray is a low-end first round pick to high-end second round pick in just about any format.
